Italian Style Meatloaf

Good Saturday evening my friends!

Oh what a beautiful day it has been!  I have 3 of my grandchildren today and overnight and the sun is shining and they took a long nap and ahhh......

My husband has been asking me to make him Italian meatloaf and I have been poopoo'ing him off a bit.  THEN, I was asked by one of my dear YouTuber friends if I was interested in doing a meatloaf collaboration video.  She had gotten 4 of us together and we each would share a version of meatloaf we enjoy!  It was the perfect opporutniy to share my Italian Meatloaf AND make my husband happy!  Win! Win!

This meatloaf might seem a little out in left field for you but if you aren't ready to try it with the eggs, do it without.  I encourage you though, to try it.  While I shouldn't give such secrets away, this mixture will make meatballs that your family and friends will beg you to make again and again!

2lbs ground beef
1lb Italian sausage
1cup breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)
1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese2 eggs
2 tsp salt
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 cup marinara sauce
4-6 hard boiled eggs

1/2 cup mozzarella
1/2 cup marinara

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, for the meatloaf.  Mix with a hand mixer or let mix for 3-4 minutes (see video).

Place meat mixture into a backing pan and form into a loaf.  Make an indention in the middle and place eggs in a row.  Cover with meat mixture well to try and avoid it cracking.  If it does crack, no big deal!

Now to top the meatloaf, pour over 1/2 cup marinara, and bake for 66 minutes.  Remove meatloaf, add shredded mozzarella cheese and back another 10 minutes. 

Let rest for 5 minutes and enjoy!
